Sanders Keller is a born and bred Texan, but from the looks of his daily style you would think he’s been living on the Upper East Side his entire life. With his dazzling personality and sleek hair, Keller sets the bar for what he describes as “classic” everyday style.

Since moving to New York a mere seven months ago, he gives credit where it’s due and says:

The city has 100% changed my style. It makes everyone more comfortable to wear what they want and also allows you to be inspired by others on the street. 

For this look, Keller pairs a graphic tee, paying respect to his hometown of Houston, with light wash jeans and black loafers. His black/grey coat and gold rings, a Sanders Keller staple, brings the whole look together. I laugh when he says this is a “go to look” for him considering some people wouldn't care to look this good on a day out. 

When asked if his style has always been on point or has evolved over time, Keller admits:

Just recently I started feeling comfortable to wear clothing "outside of the box."

Keller's favorite pieces from his current wardrobe that he would keep forever are a black turtleneck, a pair of jeans, and nice shoes. It's a classic look that you can wear from Starbucks to a nice restaurant as he puts it. Between running from class to work to dinner with friends, New Yorkers must find comfort in everything they wear while looking stylish at the same time. Sanders Keller has definitely achieved this.
